    First thing you do is trim these GM mount tabs out of your outer corners.
    So to be clear 3rd generation GM F-body are the t-top weather seals is what is needed?

    Yep. But preference goes to getting Camaro seals. While both 3rd Gen GM F-body are the same shaped seal, only the Firebird has those plastic inserts in the corners that have to be cut out for Mopar use. Buy the Chevy part and save yourself the work.

    What supplier of seals did you use? I don't have the box anymore but the brand I purchased had a sticker with the part number and stated they were for 82-92 Camaro and Firebird and had no plastic inserts. On edit it is possible that I just pulled off the plastic part as they were not hooked to the seals very well. The seals part number is TP7003. I think they are Metro seals. Anyway they were listed for 82-92 Camaro and Firebird

    The plastic inserts are in Factory Firebird seals. I'm not surprised repros don't have them. My local salvage yard had 12 t-top 3rd Gen's and I was able to extract 9 sets of good original seals.

    It takes an Xacto knife and a cut-off disc grinder to chop those inserts out. They're molded into the corners and used to screw them to the car. Firebird top side seals are also screwed to the tops too. Although they're also shaped identical to Camaro.

    Evidently the aftermarket seals are a little more forgiving. I remember now just taking a razor and slicing the tab off. It was only attached to the seal by no more than 1/4" rubber.
